The media is has been awash for weeks with the news that our dearly loved Molly Meldrum could have become paralysed by a recent fall in Bangkok, but until now we did not know that he could have lost his arm in his recent accident. According to media reports, Meldrum dislocated his shoulder in the fall and he says himself the damage was significant.
Molly, the energetic host of Countdown, the show that changed the music industry forever in the 70s and 80s, arrived back in his home this week after the accident to greet his little dog Ziggy.
At the same time, the soundtrack recorded for his recent TV mini series on Seven Molly has shot to number one in the album charts causing him much delight given the competition for the position. His delight at beating out his old music sparring partner Elton John is enigmatic in this video. “At Number 10 is Elton John with his Album so… Maaa ma ma ma ma!” he said joyfully in this interview.
